Say Hello To My Aussie Friend






As you guys know, I recently sold my S14. It was sad to see it go, but I was about to get a new "daily" car which isn't a 2-door, and non-Japanese.

So I contacted my friend who was working in KATUSA, I asked him if there are any used cars that were imported by American soldiers.





He called me later that day, and brought the '08 Pontiac G8 Base model, Panther Black, 3.6 V6 GM Engine and 5-Spd Automatic Tranny.

I am a big fan of those Aussie-American associates, so we made a deal and I brought this beauty for V$ 8500.





The previous owner was using her as a perfect daily car, nothing modified except the HSV sticker and the GXP Brakes.

Well I wanted the GT or GXP trim but I had no choice. Simple base trim to make a new car, I hope.




+ V$ 12500 (S14)

- V$ 8500 (G8)

- V$ 5 (Sandwich)

Total V$ 5600

I've been doing some research about the car's history, and I found something interesting - Some parts were not original.

I mean, the parts were made for VE chassis, but it is not in the right trim and the market.

First, the headlights - It was from the VE Commodore (AU) base model headlights, which doesn't include the projection lights.



So I replaced it with the OEM Pontiac G8 lights for V$ 250.

Second, it was the single-pipe mufflers from the base line VE Commodore, which was the main reason why the V6 engine didn't sound like it used to be.



Those were also replaced to OEM G8 twin-pipe mufflers.

Fun Facts : Australian G8s were transported to Korean GM Facility in Korea for US delivery. *LINK*



- V$ 250 (Lights)

- V$ 250 (Mufflers)

Total V$ 5100

I will put those headlights back when this one breaks ;)

I also found out that a batch of G8 GTs were secretly imported by US Air Force.

I guess I am the only Base model here. That sounds interesting.

It'll be my daily sedan, so probably I'll go "LS swap" and then full HSV or Holden conversion.

Nice G8.. I'd say HSV conversion since they look pretty sexy and your S13 looking better and better!
